Miss Susie

The Story Lady, Proprietor

For years I have dreamed of owning a boutique-style bookstore that would be a great gift center for grandmas, as well as an event center for kids.  In 2014, I fulfilled my dream when I opened Once Upon a Storybook!  Before opening the shop, I spent 18 years homeschooling my four children, writing curricula (always literature-centered!), running literature classes for other homeschoolers, and proofreading and writing for a couple of OC educational publishers.  Don't ask me what my favorite book is . . . I've got it narrowed down to about 37 at the present :-)
